Boston's Decentralized Autonomous Organization Development Message Board › What should we read first?
At the first meetup it was decided that we will propose papers to read, pick some, and then discuss them at the next meetup. If anyone is willing to give a tutorial (which can be very informal) on some topic, that would also be appreciated.
If you have a paper you want to read, please suggest it. If you are willing to give a tutorial on some topic, please mention that. If you like any of the previous paper suggestions or tutorial offers, please say which ones.
I'll go first:
- Aviad mentioned an interest in automated "preposition checking", for which this looks relevant:
The Ups and Downs of Preposition Error Detection in ESL Writing (Tetreault and Chodorow) link.
- Modeling Bottom-Up Learning from Activity in Soar (Georgeon et al.) link
I haven't read the paper, but in the abstract it says it's based on constructivist learning (which is related to Piaget, which came up at the first meetup).
A couple papers on the spatial semantic hierarchy, a method for representing the spatial environment of a robot:
- The Spatial Semantic Hierarchy (Kuipers) link
- Exploiting Local Perceptual Models for Topological Map-Building (Beeson et al.) link
- I could give an overview of Markov decision processes and reinforcement learning.
- I could talk about Gary Drescher's original work trying to implement some of Piaget's ideas. This is outlined in a book (Made-Up Minds), but I don't know of any shorter papers covering it.
